Week 8 Update
By Logan Schechter
First, Let’s Focus on Cleveland
Retired NFL Quarterback, Jeff Garcia, contacted the Buccaneers requesting a tryout as a solution to the Brown’s quarterback problem. Garcia hasn’t thrown an NFL pass in five years and left the NFL in 2011. The Browns kindly declined his offer and will give Jason Campbell the start this Sunday against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs. Brown’s head coach, Rob Chudzinski, said, “I’m going to give my team the best chance to win.”
Brown’s Receiver, Josh Gordon, is tired of listening to the rumors of trade and stated that if the trade is going to happen he would like it to get it done.
Now Some Questions for the League
Huge controversy surrounds the Jets-Patriot game and the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Chris Jones. Patriot’s Coach, Bill Belichick, disagreed with the call on Jones for pushing his teammate into the Jet’s formation. This call led to the Jet’s overtime victory. The questionable call prompted the Dolphins to turn over film from their Week 5 matchup with the Ravens where Chris Canty shoved Arthur Jones into the line, resulting in a missed 57 yard field goal.
In Last Sunday’s Game, Colt’s punter, Pat McAfee, leveled Bronco returner, Trindon Holliday. On what looked to be a helmet to helmet hit. McAfee came away looking like the toughest punter since Ray Guy. However, the next day the league called for a random steroid test on McAfee. Before he can become legend amongst punters, guess he needs to test “negative.”
Finally, a Criminal Matter
Eagle’s offensive lineman, Todd Herremans, was robbed last week when a Philadelphia parking lot attendant snuck into his car and snagged bank information. The attendant was charged with bank fraud after using Herremans’ checking account information to transfer 225,000 dollars to his own account.
